Welcome back and welcome to August. Hard to believe that 2022 is now more than halfway over. Let's see how we did this weekend. Friday: Day one of the STL RPM. It was good although attendance seamed down this year. I met a lot of talented modelers and enjoyed talking with them. I finally bought a Cannon and Company boxcar kit (B&M of course). That may be the subject of a future build thread. Saturday: Day two of the show and unfortunately attendance was very low. I think a few folks decided to stay home this year. Still, a good show overall. I picked up some detail parts for my Proto Throttle and some cool working derails for the HO layout. We had the booth down and packed by 4:45pm and I was home by 8:00pm. Sunday: Was fun, and for my first race, I was hooked. Honestly, I used to watch NASCAR back in the old days as I was a huge Bill Elliott fan but stopped watching it in 2001. A lot has changed but I really enjoyed it. Mike McDowell is a class act and he finished in the top 10. The last few laps were exciting, and I may do this again. No real modeling this day, just a fun day with the family. So how about you? What did you accomplish? Let us know. We'll assemble again on Friday, August 5th to start the process all over again for a new month. Until then, have a great week, be safe, stay healthy and as always... High Greens!
